Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jerry on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 11:55pm.

A critical reaction in the production of energy to do work or drive chemical reactions in biological systems is the hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate, ATP, to adenosine diphosphate, ADP, as described by

ATP(aq) +H2O (l) --->ADP(aq) +HPO4^2-

for which ΔG°rxn = –30.5 kJ/mol at 37.0 °C and pH 7.0. Calculate the value of ΔGrxn in a biological cell in which [ATP] = 5.0 mM, [ADP] = 0.30 mM, and [HPO4^2–] = 5.0 mM.

I got an answer of -15.527 kJ/mol and it marked me wrong. Also I got an answer of -27.3968 kJ/mol and it is wrong. Could you please tell me your answer and how you worked it out thanks.
